The following is a brief summary of the various migrants that have passed

None since.

Sacred Kingfishers. First birds in from PNG 21 September and now calling 
incessantly everywhere I travel in the Kimberley.

Common Koel. I didn't hear any birds calling until 21 October.
Yellow Wagtail. Just saw my first bird today 1 November at the sewage ponds 
when I was photographing the Orange Chat that also turned up today. If anyone 
reading this is an expert in Yellow Wagtail subspecies and wouldn't mind 
helping me id the pics I have taken I'll email them to you.
